Card Sort: How did Hitler become Chancellor in 1933?

Card Sort: How did Hitler become Chancellor in 1933?

This outstanding resource has been designed for students studying the new GCSE syllabus on Weimar Germany 1918 - 1933. It focuses on the key reasons why Hitler became Chancellor in 1933. It can be used as a starter, consolidation exercise, plenary or even a homework activity. This activity is designed to appeal to students of all abilities and has a stretch and challenge question at the end which can be used either as a discussion point or as the focus for a written task. When you purchase this resource it includes a fully editable two page Microsoft Word document with a learning aim and three activities. It also includes eight heading cards labeled propaganda, election promises, wealthy backers, support, the depression, Weimar constitution, technology, Hitler’s image and eight matching statement cards which explain why Hitler became Chancellor in 1933. At the bottom of the page there is an extension question that provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate what they have know by explaining the two main reason. Depending upon your photocopying budget, on page two I have included a third activity with matching images to go with each heading and explanation. When completed, this resource creates a useful revision guide which looks very impressive visually. Depending upon the ability of the class, it should take no more than 20 minutes to do the card sort. Afterwards they could have a go at doing an extended question answering the question: ‘Why did Hitler become Chancellor in 1933?’ The aims and objectives are: Theme: The Rise of Hitler Know: What factors helped Hitler become Chancellor? Understand: What roles were played by economic, social and political factors in Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor? Evaluate: Which factor was the most important? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: The key reasons why Hitler became Chancellor in 1933? Explain: What roles were played by political, social and economic factors in his appointment?
